CW Orders Additional Episodes for Freshman Series ‘Charmed,’ ‘Legacies’ and ‘All American’

“Charmed” reboot gets net’s biggest vote of confidence

The CW has ordered additional episodes for all three of its freshman series, “Charmed,” “Legacies” and “All American.”

“Legacies” and “All American” each received an additional three episodes, bringing the total run to 16 apiece. The CW handed out nine new episodes to its reboot of “Charmed,” giving that series a full season run of 22 episodes.

“All American” lost its showrunner a week before its premiere when April Blair stepped down and was replaced by co-executive producer Nkechi Okoro Carroll. Blair wrote the pilot for the series.

“Charmed” is written and executive produced by Jessica O’Toole and Amy Rardin, along with executive producer and creator Jennie Urman. Brad Silberling directed the pilot and is grabbing an executive producing credit with Ben Silverman and Carter Covington. It stars Madeleine Mantock, Melonie Diaz and Sarah Jeffery.

“Legacies” continues the tradition of “The Vampire Diaries” and “The Originals,” telling the story of the next generation of supernatural beings at The Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted. Julie Plec and Brett Matthews write and executive producer, along with Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo.

The CW still has five series set to premiere during the midseason 2019, including new series “Roswell, New Mexico,” and “In the Dark” and the returns of “Jane the Virgin,” “iZombie” and “The 100.”
